Boxers shorts are all-around elastic shorts named after the shorts worn by professional fighters. They first originated in the 1930's. Boxer shorts gained massive popularity in the 1980's when Nick Kamen appeared wearing them in a Levis advertisement. Most television programs prefer displaying men in boxer shorts rather than other types of underwear. It is the more socially acceptable underwear type to see in mass media. Johan of PBB double up danced in boxers during Rica's birthday celebration inside Pinoy Big Brother house.
I started wearing wearing boxers shorts since 2006. I love the different styles, colors, and patterns of Bench boxers shorts. Boxers shorts are much easier to take compared to other types of underwear. The temperature inside the boxer shorts is much cooler. Boxer shorts can be worn as lounge wear in a social setting. The opening in front of the boxer shorts gives easier access to the male genital :-) when the need to urinate is urgent. Boxer shorts do not reveal a lot of details of the man's covered region.
